The Miami Dolphins are getting ready to kickoff their 2022 regular season with a Week 1 showdown against their AFC East division rivals, the New England Patriots. This is the third straight season in which the Dolphins and Patriots meet in Week 1, but after playing in New England to open the 2020 and 2021 seasons, today’s game is in South Florida.

The Patriots are coming off a Wildcard berth in 2021, a reminder to the league that even without Tom Brady at quarterback, head coach Bill Belichick is not going to go away. Now, they are coming into the 2022 season with higher expectations and a belief in second-year quarterback Mac Jones after a Pro Bowl selection to end the year.

Meanwhile, the Dolphins have similar expectations after an offseason that saw the team masterly overhaul the coaching staff, the offensive system, and the weapons surrounding third-year quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. Coming off back-to-back winning seasons, the team is now looking to race their way into the playoffs using behind the blazing speed of wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, running back Raheem Mostert, and tight end Mike Gesicki. The Dolphins have the pieces on offense unlike anything they have had since at least the Dan Marino days of the team. If Tagovailoa can utilize the weapons around him, the Dolphins will be meeting, or even surpassing, expectations this year.

The Dolphins continue to be favored in the game, with the spread listed as a 3.5 favorite as of Sunday morning, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

Today’s game is just one of 17 for each of these teams, but it feels like a statement game for both sides. Each team will be looking to prove, not just that they can compete in the division, but they they are a force which which every other AFC teams needs to contend this season. The Buffalo Bills confirmed their position as the Super Bowl favorite on Thursday night, but the Dolphins and the Patriots will be looking to make sure they are not ruled out of the conversation in Week 1.
